Rocca di Montegrossi Rosato IGT Toscana 2017
Located in the Commune of Galole, in the heart of Chianti, Rocca di Montegrossi was established in the 7th Century by the family's ancestor Geremia. Current owner Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi restored the vineyards here, and only produces wine in the best vintages. 100% Sangiovese from the organically-farmed San Marcellino vineyard.
VM90: Bright pink. Fresh herbs, earth tones and raspberry on the nose, complicated by a touch of blood orange and licorice. In a serious, dry style, displaying very good intensity to its delicate, restrained red fruit flavors that are made even more austere by laser-like acidity. Finishes long and savory with a refreshingly bitter note of cherry pit on the finish. This fresh 100% Sangiovese wine will stand up well even to richer foods.
